Thankful for Veterans Day

As we approach Thanksgiving I am reminded of all of the wonderful things in this world that I am thankful for.  Tomorrow is Veteran's Day and I am extremely thankful for Veterans.  Without those who serve and protect our country, we wouldn't be able to live these privileged lives that we live.  My husband and I try to instill this gratitude in our children.  Every time we see a man or woman in uniform we thank them for serving our country.  This is just a small token of thanks for the daily sacrifice that they undergo. So, from my entire family, thank you to all former, current and future veterans.  We are forever in your debt.  And a special thank you to the families of these soldiers.  Your sacrifice is usually unsung but without your support, our troops would never be able to do the awesome job that they do, to thank you too.

On to lunch!
Our main entrée is a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich on whole wheat bread.  We've cut these out with some cookie cutters that represent a few of our other favorite things about November (other than Veteran's Day).  Turkey and Football!

Our vegetable side is some English Cucumbers that have been cut with a crinkle cut knife.  We just like to mix it up now and then. ☺

Our fruit side is some canned Tropical Fruit Salad.  Molly and her brother and sister really enjoy this combination.  It has some pineapple, papaya, mango and pears.  All nice and sweet and very juicy.

Finally, for dessert we have some New Pepperidge Farm Cocoa Adventures Goldfish Crackers.  These are chocolate flavored graham cracker goldfish with small marshmallows that are usually found in hot cocoa.  Its a really cute combination and the kids love them.
